You know the saying: While the cat’s away, the mice will play! Well, the cat is away this weekend. My wife is with her best friend in New York, so I’m left this weekend to my own imagination. I just didn’t feel like I wanted to stay home this weekend, so, I planned a small (200 mile) excursion. I decided to go to the beach of all places. I need to get a life! 🙂 We’ve been living in North…

My son, Pedro, chillin at the beach Well, the wife’s out of town with her best friend. They’re hangin’ out in NYC. So, it’s just me, Tony, and Hobbs. I’m going fishing with my good friend Lawrence. Tony doesn’t want to get up so early and Hobbs, well, he doesn’t even like to be around water that much. Later on today, I plan to go on a reconnaissance mission.

The only thing that my critique would do is to help them…

Now, I have had some pretty creative … never mind! On to something else: 🙂 As I read through various blogs, from time to time, there seems to be a recurring theme: Photographers want to reinvent themselves, or to do something different, something ‘more creative’. I’m not quite sure what that means. However, there are all sorts of advice out there on how to become more creative. One that I’ve seen more frequently of late is to take 36 or…

The turtle story On Father’s Day, I spent part of my day with a crew of mostly South Carolinians. The day started in Hardee’s where we were regaled by stories about turtles, in particular about processing a dead one, and about the importance of knowing the language when you go to the grocery store, otherwise, you might end up eating cat food instead of the tuna that you intended to buy! 🙂 After spending about 40 minutes there and waiting…
